At bedrock of the World Trade Center site, on an unfinished wall of the 9/11 Memorial Museum, Debra Burlingame used a black marker to scrawl a message in tribute to her brother, Capt. Charles "Chic" Burlingame, a pilot on American Airlines Flight 77 that crashed into the Pentagon on 9/11.
Part of her message reads: "Pentagon Attack. 9-11-01. Never Forget. God Bless America."
Debra is a member of the 9/11 Memorial's board of directors, as are other 9/11 victims families. Because of their efforts and other members of the board, the 9/11 Memorial at the WTC site will open in a few months as a national tribute of honor and remembrance for visitors from across the globe.
